"Since graduating from CSU, I am pursuing a Masters in Musicology degree and a PhD in Geography from Florida State University. I have decided to continue in my education by combining my passions for music, history, and GIS by working on the geography of music. Most of my research currently focuses on the ways in which women composers of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries have composed American place and identity. I have presented on this topic at national and international conferences, and am currently working on a composition of the Hudson River.
